Course Objectives: 
To make acquainted the students using computer aided engineering tools to design and
analyse the structural, fluid flowand heat transfer related systems. 
Course Outcomes: 
At the end of the course, a student will be able to:
 Create 1D, 2D and 3D Finite Element Models of mechanical systems.
 Understand the solution techniques available in computer aided engineering tools.
 Evaluate the design of mechanical systems by conducting stress analysis,
thermal analysis or fluid flowanalysis.

List of Experiments/Exercises: 
I. Static Structural Analysis  Creation of Finite Element Models and Evaluation of Displacements, Stresses and Reaction Forces of
 axially loaded members – using bar and truss elements
 transversely loaded members – using beam elements
 combined axial and transverse loaded members – using frame elements
 thin plates or discs – using four or eight node quadrilateral elements (plane stress)
 long pipes or dams – using four or eight node quadrilateral elements (plane strain)
 brackets – using four or ten node tetrahedrons or eight or twenty node hexahedron elements
II. Dynamic Structural Analysis  Evaluation of natural frequencies and mode shapes of
 axially and transversely loaded members
III. Thermal Analysis  Construction of Finite Element Models and study of temperature distribution in
 fins or composite plane walls using one dimensional elements
 chimneys or other plane sections using two dimensional elements
IV. Steady state fluid flow analysis  Building of Finite Element Models and study of velocity distribution of fluid in
 channels or pipes over bluff bodies
